That's OK Steve
I thought that it was the so-called Bradshaws that you were talking about.
I saw them some years ago. It is true that they are very old, and that they
are dissimilar to other art. However it is a contentious suggestion that
they were painted by another race which predates Aboriginal occupation.
Bradshaw claimed that the art was to fine to have been drawn by Aboriginals
as he perceived them as a crude people.
All I can say to that Steve is there is no evidence that anyone predated
them. In fact Homo Australus (sp?) is the oldest modern hominoid yet found.
Thanks for your time.
